Police: Thief busted with 'smart food'

Here's a news release from Spokane Valley police spokesman Sgt. Dave Reagan titled, "Stolen “Smart Food” No Help to Thief."

A 24-year-old Spokane man was arrested Tuesday evening after he attempted to steal $329 worth of Blu Ray DVD’s and an egg roll, a burrito and an item labeled “smart food.”

Officer Lamont Peterson was called to the East Sprague Avenue and North Sullivan Road Fred Meyer store about 7 p.m. after a security officer stopped Mordekye A. Layman as he attempted to leave the store with the items hidden in a canvas bag.

Peterson arrested Layman for third-degree theft and returned the property to the store.
